We get this question all the time…”What is the weather like for that month?” This is not an easy question to answer! During the “winter”, I can be wearing shorts one day and a coat the next. Of course my definition of cold is probably completely different than most of yours! It is currently 73 degrees in the office and I am wearing a winter coat 🙂 That being said, here are the average temperatures for Tybee as well as the average rainfall. Hope this helps!

Seagulls…What not to do!

657I think seagulls are absolutely adorable…that is until about 12 o’clock when I am laying on the beach and hungry. If you have ever tried to eat ANYTHING on the beautiful beaches of Tybee Island, then you probably know exactly what I am talking about. If you have never been around these boisterous birds, think Finding Nemo when the birds are about to eat Marlin and Dory and their myriad of “mines.” Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!
